So, I uninstalled the Panasonic DV Codec. Now when I play back the clip in "Project" mode in VS X5, the video plays back smoothly. I can also Share to files and have them play back correctly.
I had to run a DOS command from a command prompt to uninstall the Panasonic Codec because it wasn't available for a normal uninstall:
RUNDLL32.EXE SETUPAPI.DLL,InstallHinfSection DefaultUninstall 132 path-to-uninstall-dir\infname.inf
(note to self: don't use quotes to surround path)
The path-to-uninstall-dir\infname.inf should be replaced with the path to PANADV.INF.
Thanks for the reply Kingston.
1. Using GSpot 2.70a http://www.headbands.com/gspot/ it sees it as a H.264
codec "bad chunk in frame data"
2. VirtualDub 1.9. 11 http://virtualdub.org/ will not open the file
"Couldn't locate decompressor for format 'H264' (unknown)"
I found this reference, so
"During install make sure to check the boxes 'VFW Interface' and 'VirtualDub' under 'Application plugins'.
If you already have other codecs, and you don’t need ffdshow to decode anything except H264 in VirtualDub, uncheck everything else except
“H.264/AVC” at the two steps where it lets you choose what codecs ffdshow should decode.
When you’re done, go to your start menu (all programs on XP), ffdshow, VFW configuration. Select the decoder tab, and click on Codecs on the upper
left. Click on “H.264/AVC” on the right, and in the middle column make sure it’s NOT disabled (aka libavcodec is selected).
Then click apply and your
H264 video should be openable in VirtualDub."
I selected only the components VFW Interface and VirtualDub
The additional tasks I had selected only H..264/AVC and ibavcodec
3. MediaInfo 0.7.55 http://mediainfo.sourceforge.net/en opens the file OK
4. Plays OK using vlc

It would appear that I do not have the appropriate codecs and/or need to uninstall some unknown unnecessary codec.
